Dr. White Challenges Dr. Vines On John 3:16

Dr. White challenges Dr. Vines' eisegesis of John 3:16. For most of us, we have all heard John 3:16 over and over again outside of its context. We actually have heard it to the point that it sounds like a summary of all doctrine. We hear John 3:16 without realizing the traditions that we force upon the text. Most of us hear, "For God so loved every single person ever in a salvific way, that He gave His only begotten Son as a substitute for every single person ever, that whosoever of their own autonomous free-will would just believe in Jesus, would not perish but have eternal life."

Is that what the text teaches? Watch this video and see if that is the case. You will see one side interacting with the text. You will see the other side make assertions with no foundation for them.
